(From 2013 Vintage) Inspired by classic French Right Bank Bordeaux wines, this blend of merlot and cabernet franc showcases the bold, distinctive terrior of Paso Robles with full, bright fruit.
This has become one of JUSTIN's iconic wines in a very brief time. It is a unique blend inspired by the Bordeaux "right-bank" regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where very little cabernet sauvignon is grown due to soil and drainage conditions. JUSTIN has always been "justifiably" proud of the excellent cabernet franc on our property, and our small plots of merlot give it just the right richness of fruit in a serious and cellarable wine. It offers a touch more elegance than our complementary ISOSCELES blend, and sees a briefer time in French-only oak as well.
